Chapter Fund

The Chapter Fund is available to AFP GLAC members to help cover chapter dues, National Philanthropy Day, in-person events and educational opportunities as well as help underwrite costs of running the chapter for all members. The funds are important to sustain membership, open doors to learning, and to deepen the profession regionally. What the chapter offers improves fundraising skills across the region and builds networking. We all bring in additional cash, in-kind, and promotional support to find cures for cancer, homes for the homeless, new works of art, and countless other important things that make Los Angeles alive. One-time and monthly donations available.

Thank you to our donors!
